I was studying the bible today and casually opened Isaiah 62 (I use the Amplified Bible) and I enjoyed what I read. I however like to read various translations and my absolute favorite is The Message Bible. So I decided to read the same Isaiah 62 using The Message Bible translation in my phone and mehnnn, I was blown away. I was thoroughly blessed and decided to share it in my blog. I hope this encourages someone. Feel free to personalize it by inserting your name. So below is The Message Bible as interpreted by Che :-D
Che, foreign countries will see your righteousness, and world leaders your glory. I will get a brand new name straight from the mouth of God. I will be a stunning crown in the palm of God's hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of my God. No more will anyone call me Rejected and my life will no more be called Ruined. I will be called Hephzibah (God's delight) and my land Beulah (Married), because God delights in me and my land (life) will be like a wedding celebration. For as a bridegroom is happy in his bride, so my God is happy with me.
Verses 6 & 7: And keep praying, calling out and reminding God of these words. Give God no peace (I have become God's personal pest and it's allowed :-D) until He does what He said, until He establishes Che and makes her a famous city of praise.
Che, concerning you, God has taken a solemn oath (can you beat that), an oath He means to keep. This is the oath: " Never again will foreigners drink the wine that you worked so hard to produce. No". I will work and do my business and reap the bountiful harvest therein and praise God for it.
God has broadcasted to the entire world: Tell my daughter Che, "Look your Savior comes, ready to do what He said he would do and prepared to complete what He promised. Che will be called new names: Holy People, God-Redeemed, Sought-Out, Person-Not-Forsaken.
Thus saith the Lord.
Che dancing about wildly in excitement :-D
I get recharged when I receive Word like this from God. It's good to know that God has my back and has His eyes constantly on me.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
Lots of love and hugs.
